Starships is of course featured on the part rap, part ravey album Roman Reloaded which shot straight to the top of the UK album chart at the beginning of the month. Her loyal legion of Barbz made Nicki the first female rapper to reach the number 1 spot on the UK Top 40 Albums Chart (UNBELIEVABLE). Starships is the third song off the album to be given a video following Stupid Hoe and Beez in the Trap.
The futuristic video, filmed in Hawaii sees the leader of the Barbz strut around on the beach-each and has everything a mini Minaj movie should. She lands from her star ship wearing a tiny pink bikini showing off her impressively curvaceous figure as she splashes around with a booty that’s more impressive than J-Lo and Beyoncé’s put together. We are treat with an array of colourful wigs and unique outfits and parts of the video at a volcanic location are shot in neon Superbass style. There’s even some topless dancers thrown in there too.
Recently returning to Twitter after a fall out with a fan she tweeted; “The people of Hawaii we’re so enchanting. And that mountaintop was freezing. The wind was blowing so hard.” Oh, it’s too early in the day to even attempt a blowing joke.
Nicki was in London last week promoting the album with a signing at HMV Bayswater and an appearance on The Graham Norton show. She’s back in June for the Pink Friday UK tour that starts with two anticipated shows at the Hammersmith Apollo from the 24th. The four show tour sold out in 8 minutes, proving in fact she’s no stupid hoe.
